Just recently found out that 2 of the 3 pieces I had submitted for the “Fresh Works” art show at the Harrington Gallery later this month were picked. To say Im stoked is an understatement. They even used one of the pieces for the event page.

laggin !!!!

Since finishing up at school I really havent had much time for art and being a creative its freakin killing me!!! But my work schedule should get back to normal (hopefully) soon and I should be done with the complete house remodel by the end of May. Its slow going doing it myself plus I aint as young as I used to be. I’ve got tons of post-it notes all over the studio and want to get back to my 60’s roots bad. Mainly some original ink work with the usual tattoo/psychedelic/kustom kulture/Art Nouveau look-n-feel. Maybe a trip into some zombie pin-ups…………….sufficate it to say anything is possible! In the meantime this is a t-shirt/poster design I worked up for a charity motorcycle run in May

pushing forward……….

Still trying to get the hang of this techno way of connecting to people and I know that I need to get serious about it if I want to move forward with getting my work seen by as many people as possible. So if your reading this please take the time to have a look at my site. It would also be greatly appreciated if you would leave a comment to let me know what you think about my work. Right now Im getting ready for my second 1-man show. This one will be in the Mertes Center for the Arts Gallery at Las Positas College in Livermore which opens on the 29 of November ‘n runs till the 9 of December. ( see flier in digital art works ) The artist reception is going to be on November 30 from 4-7pm with some live pinstriping demos, finger food, and lots of eye candy on the walls. So far its getting a positive buzz and should (hopefully) increase when the write up in the Independent Newspaper comes out next Thursday. I’ve had lots of help getting to where I am today. Fredda Cassidy who was the VCOM department head that believed in me, Eric Berendt my Photoshop instructor who encouraged me to push on.

TBonez Graffix

Welcome to the blog of TBonez Graffix. Use the pull down menu above to view examples of my hand painted and digital work along with originals and limited edition prints for sale. You can also see a list of show dates for the year. I’d very much like to know what you think of my work so before you go please leave me a comment.


Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area during the 60’s I became greatly influenced by the art …… and mindset of that time. This is evident by the colored pencil pieces shown below that I did in high school. With a strong sense of color and design my style is a mix of tattoo, psychedelic, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Baroque with a touch of Rick Griffin. Guess you could say pretty much anything goes. For me my art has always been a journey of self-expression, always testing my self with no other goal than to create work that others may enjoy. Hope you like the art I have created as much as I’ve had a blast doing. Thanx for stopping by.
